With a repertoire drawn from across Europe,
Mooncoin's diverse range of music encompasses many folk traditions as well as
contemporary influences. The 4-piece creates an exciting and distinctive sound
which is entertaining, and yet emotive. Their material is taken from the
traditions of Ireland, England, Sweden and a wealth of music covering much of
eastern Europe and the northern hemisphere.
Since joining the band in June 2001, Paul Keeler has brought a more eastern European flavour to the band and new avenues to be discovered. The band lends their tunes a fresh new interpretation and the individual Mooncoin twist to produce something
Mooncoin have created a style with
their songs and cleverly arranged tune sets which displays a brilliant musical
ability but does not compromise the verve and humour evident in their approach
to music. Added to this, the band's
love of playing makes them as happy when playing at small social events
as when playing at major international festivals.
